Richard Burgon has told a Labour gathering in Liverpool that whoever wins the leadership does not have a mandate "to ditch a single socialist policy from the last two manifestos".  The message was well received by the audience and the deputy leadership candidate added that the next leader would need the "express permission of the Labour party members" to do so.

The hard left have got an odd grasp of democracy.  Whoever wins the leadership contest will have a mandate from the members as that's who elected them!
